Mar 01 2017 by Kate Woods
After months of speculations HMD Global Oy, the official licensee of Nokia on Sunday finally pulled the wraps off the much anticipated Android-power Nokia 6, 5, 3 and also the new Nokia 3310 feature-phone at pre-Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 event in Barcelona on February 26.
You can understand why; this was a phone that established itself as a true classic; robust, functionally ideal in its simplicity and with a battery life measured in days not hours. It states that the company is in plans to manufacturer these phones via Foxconn in India. The Nokia 6 will also have a splendid special edition with a piano black finish which will come for 229 euros or over Rs. 16,000. While a lack of connectivity to the internet and therefore emails may frustrate many business-focused users, HMD Global are hoping the simplicity and large element of nostalgia will convince consumers. An oddity, a relic of a bygone era, the Nokia 3310 is a feature phone that dares to stand tall amongst today's infinitely complex smartphones. The up and coming Nokia device has been hugely touted to be the very same as its predecessor, but some experts are having doubts. And adding gloss to the news, Nokia is keen on reviving one of its popular product, the Nokia 3310 feature phone.
Eschewing the computer-in-your-pocket standard of the modern smartphone market, the Nokia 3310 has a traditional numbered keypad and three physical navigation keys. We wanted to reward loyal Nokia phone fans and make a statement that rich heritage, innovation and modern design can go hand-in-hand. What do you think of the new Nokia 3310?
The Nokia 3310 is an apocalypse-ready phone; the type of phone you will nearly certainly need if the proverbial ever actually hits the fan.
Nokia announced previous year that it had licensed Finnish company HMD Global to produce Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets. Anticipation for a new version of the phone has been at fever pitch since news of the release leaked earlier this year, according to the Guardian.
"If we look at Nokia's new phones, they have good specs but not as good as [what] Xiaomi, Vivo or Oppo are offering at the price point".
The Nokia 3 is the most affordable of the lineup and also the smallest. However, the Nokia 3 is made from a block of aluminium, and the rear end is coated in polycarbonate.
Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch full-HD screen and is crafted from a single block of 6000 series aluminium.
